Modern tan calf with spine in 6 compartments, raised bands with red and black labels and gilt decorations, simple gold borders on front and rear panels, and edge decorations. Presents very nicely on the shelf. Text in Latin. Full calf. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace. (see Babson 30, Babson 32, Gray 17, and Wallis 17).
